Pre-Gamin’: Cubs v. Angels, Indians v. Cubs (2:05 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, etc.


tempe-diablo-stadiumHalf of the Cubs welcome the Indians to Cubs Park, and the other half head out to Tempe to take on the Angels. The latter game is televised out west, so if you’ve got, you can watch.


James McDonald will make his first Spring Training start against the Angels, and Edwin Jackson will start against the Indians.

Interesting lineups today, with Luis Valbuena picking up a start at second base (accommodating Christian Villanueva at third), Mike Olt batting cleanup, Darwin Barney DH’ing rather than playing shortstop, and a Bryant/Baez left side of the infield.
